I don't know about you, but my inbox is bombarded with emails about current sales. And as many of you will know, I can't resist picking up a bargain. Last week Urban Outfitters had an extra 30% off sale items. I've not bought much from there before, but what I have bought has been for my bedroom. A few years ago I bought a patterned quilt and a blue rug from them.
Do I need another duvet? Absolutely not, but I do like to have options. Also, I wanted to see the difference in quality between the UO bedding and the more expensive Anthropologie bedding.
Urban Outfitters is owned by the same people as Anthropologie, but caters to a much more youthful crowd (not that I'm not youthful still, but you know what I mean). As such the goods are generally lower priced and, as you guessed it, not as well made as the pieces from Anthro. I was really surprised though that I could get a duvet and 2 shams in a style that is very similar to my DwellStudio bedding for less than $50. As a point of reference, the DwellStudio set retails for $350 and used to be carried by Anthropologie.
But I do love the pink bird!
See if you can spot the difference between the photos below.
Yep, I can mix and match the pillows with my old set!
